Garden landscaping supplier Deco-Pak has acquired the national sales team of rival Living Stone, which has gone into administration.
Deco-Pak, based in Brighouse, West Yorkshire, said the Living Stone sales team "have a wealth of knowledge and experience of the gardening industry, helping to further enhance the company's market-leading offering".
The expansion of the team will see Deco-Pak's national coverage strengthened as the additional team members join the existing field sales representatives on the road.
Joining Deco-Pak are Neville and Karen Murphy, Chris and Allan Gage, David Stone, Richard Barrow, Michael Nottage, Steve Wilkie, Gary Martin and Michael Brydon.
The new collaboration coincides with Deco-Pak's wider business development plans, which includes the company's move into new premises. The 14 acre site includes two acres of indoor storage and offices.
